I hesitate to post this project because I manufacture the hardware kit for this saw.
I needed a panel saw a few years ago, so I designed and made one. It was always in the way so I recently made it portable with a knock down design. When collapsed, the saw is 40 inches wide and 12 inches deep. It fits into my PT Cruiser. It only takes 5 to 6 minutes to set up. You can swap the saw for the router in under 30 seconds.
The electrical hardware is not really part of the saw, but it sure makes it nice. It holds the cord out of the way and goes on and off in seconds.
The rear view shows the OSB legs that swing out on hinges. They make excellent places to store clamps.
No tools are required to assemble and disassemble the saw. The knobs store conveniently in one of the parts.
The carriages are made of 1/2” shatterproof polycarbonate. You can always see the cut line.
